Monday night’s debate between Rep. Ashley Hinson and Congresswoman Abby Finkenauer didn’t feature many surprises, if any.

However, two questions posed back-to-back caught my attention.

The candidates were asked about their position on abortion. Finkenauer said she supports Roe v. Wade as it currently stands. She opposed a 20-week abortion ban in the Iowa legislature and did not take exception to Hinson’s claim that Finkenauer supports abortion up to the moment of birth.

The very next question was about privatizing the United States Postal Service.

“It absolutely should not be privatized as it’s actually in part of our founding as a country that we have a Postal Service,” she said.

Finkenauer added the Postal Service is more important than ever.

Reflecting on the founding of our country, one could reasonably also examine the Declaration of Independence. That document literally starts out that all men are created equal, and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights. And the first of those rights listed is life.

If only unborn babies mattered to Finkenauer as much as mail.
